Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

-- Sam "Ace" Rothstein, Casino, 1995

Really Golden Nugget?


I am assuming the Golden Nugget is responsible for this one.  Unless someone can tell me otherwise, they get the blame.

The old lettering on side of this building and Nevada sign was pretty cool and was a nice piece of "vintage" Las Vegas.  The location is at the top of the GN parking garage.  So the GN tears down the sign and paints over the wall.  Really?  Was this necessary?  I am curious how long the lettering on the side of the building and the sign had been there?  I am guessing at least since the 1950's or 1960's?  Was it really an eyesore?  Did guests of the GN complain about it?  Come on now.  Ridiculous...

Here's a photo I recently took.


Here's what it used to look like:




With a little Photoshop help it made a nice "vintage" Las Vegas style photo:
